Friday Night Hot Stove Links

  • Jon Heyman is reporting that the Astros are shopping Carlos Lee, Brett Myers, and Wandy Rodriguez. Lee had a bounceback season last year, but given his recent history, I doubt any team would be interested, even at 15 cents on the dollar. Myers is a little more interesting, but he gaves up way too many home runs to succeed anywhere but Petco, Safeco, and Comerica Parks, and he's owed $14 million. Wandy Rodriguez interests me, as he's done well enough in a hitter's park that I think he'd be able to succeed in the AL East. He'd be owed $39 million over the next three seasons, but if the Astros were willing to do a Roy Oswalt-type trade - in other words, eat half the contract and only ask for B-level prospects - I'd talk to them.
  • Are the Tigers really in on Jose Reyes? Justin Verlander is due a big raise next season, so Detroit would need to bump it's payroll back into the $130-$140 million range to make this happen.
  • The Rays are interested in bringing both Johnny Damon and Casey Kotchman back next season. I really have no idea why.
  • The Rangers are trying to lock Mike Napoli up long-term. Since they're a rival of the Yankees, I hope they pay assuming that he'll keep putting up .450 wOBAs (because he almost certainly won't).
  • Use this as tonight's open thread, and enjoy your evening!
